OKay so i was just wondering how much poundage per meal is ok.

ginger is getting
6lbs triple crown senior
6lbs beet pulp
Per DAY. split in two feedings (3lbs each per meal).

Is that too much? Thats 6 lbs per feeding . Should it be broken into 3 meals or is it okay in the two meals ?

thanks!

When you switch over the the Triple Crown Senior you need to give it a while to see how she does with it. I wouldn't worry about upping or cutting back until you see how she does with this feed. It may just make a world of difference. It did with mine. I switched him from Equine Senior to Triple Crown Senior, same amount of feed and he ended up putting on weight with it. His poop went from runny to solid and he actually did much better with it. I have since added alfalfa cubes since it is winter.

I woudl go with 3qts (approx 3lbs) 3X daily until she is where you want her...


Beet pulp is up to you she can have up to 6lbs of it daily which is alot of beet pulp LOL
I followed her advice once and it made a world of difference with my horse.
